Artist Reception: Feb 11, 4-6 PM
Artist Talk: Feb 12, 2:00 PM
Pictured: Nightwalk by Carol Light
A life lived and viewed through layers of years…
Painting the perception, the responses, the experiences of life.
A simple “putting down” of these on paper or canvas.
The painting sometimes surprises, or saddens, sometimes laughter is evoked.
Dialogue between painter and painting…sometimes a painful partnership,
But always rewarding.
About The Artist:
Born in Duncan, Oklahoma on May 30, 1930, Carol moved to Austin, Texas in 1938, and lived south of the Colorado River where her parents operated a wholesale greenhouse business. This contact with the land nurtured artistic beginnings.
In 1951, Carol married William Young Light. The birth of two sons followed while Carol worked in the applied arts as a floral designer. In 1969, the family moved to a small hilltop farm in Walberg, Texas and Carol began painting.
In the early 1980s, Carol made a full-time commitment to study, learn and grow as a painter. Carol is known for her abstract work in mixed media on paper and canvas, handmade paper, and collage. In 2018, Carol’s exhibit “Ebb and Flow: 50 Years of Painting and Drawing”, showed at the Georgetown Public Library.
